Alfredo Zucchini Noodles
You know the feeling, trying to be good and reduce empty carbs like pasta from your diet.
But hey, you miss it.
I know the feeling, but these "noodles" made us both deliriously happy!
Give them a try, they are simple and delicious.
2 small zucchini, spiralized into linguine noodles (about 3 cups loosly packed)
2 Tbsp cream cheese
1 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup of Parmesan, freshly grated
1 clove garlic, crushed and minced
Salt and Pepper to taste
Boil some water, and cook the zucchini for about 1-2 minutes. Just enough to soften them a little bit and heat the noodles. Drain well.
In a fry pan, add the butter and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes over medium heat. Add the cream cheese and stir until the sauce is smooth. Add the zucchini noodles and toss to coat. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and stir again. Be careful not to overcook, you don't want these to be too soft. Think al dente...
Serve at once.
